    Thanks, dude! Just got a new belt as an early Xmas present and I think it helped a bit.

    great stuff to do
    you know, there's energy floating through our body, called the "chi" i.e. energy of life, and it's floating in meridians through our body. this energy goes through the different organs and by stretching in certain ways you can "correct" the float and get re-balanced, activate your organ-meridians. It's origin is the TCM. I know...don't laugh about that...always got to smile about that before trying! It's just great and makes me feel relaxed and my muscles feel some kind of hot afterwards. It's different from Yoga, it's dynamic and you don't hold positions or slide from one into the next.
    Sound odd and esoteric, BUT...!

    Cut out my deadlifts last night. My lower back has been really finicky all week. I'll return to them next week. Really looking forward to next weeks lifts as I'm close to my PRs again. It's been a test of patience to have a program of progressive loading start well and truly under them and build back up, but it's been worth it, as I feel way stronger and my squat form in particular is way tighter and more solid. I have no doubt I'll be busting some plateaus soon.

    Squats: 5x5 @ 132.5 kgs (291 lbs)
    OHP: 5x5 @ 60 kgs (132 lbs)
    Bench: 3x5 @92.5 kgs (203 lbs) (Felt like shit during the lift and form got sloppy... not happy at all)
    Decline DB Press 3x8 @ 35kg DBs (77 lbs)
    Supersetted with DB Flies: 3x8 @ 12.5 kgs (27.5 kgs)

    Did sprints first time as a workout rather than just an odd sprint here or there. Its actually quiet tiring. For whatever reason i feel it a bit in my biceps too, like a small body pump.

    I think i did like 5-6 sprints till 90% exhaustion. Lungs and throat were burning, my cardio is pretty shit, especially since i started smoking this year!

    Was seeing stars too by the end of last sprint and had bit of a headache at the end! Anyone know what dis suggests other than shit cardio haha.

    Random workout Sunday!

    Interspersing watching football and drinking a few beers with the following:

    20 pushups (with a 35 lb kid on the back)
    20 air squats (same 35 lb kid...might switch him out for the 40lb kid if he comes in from playing in the snow at some point)
    10 chins/pullups alternating on rounds
    20 lunge steps or 20 more air squats

    I've already done this for three rounds....with lots of rest in between rounds, but no rest between exercises. Grease the groove fashion rather than doing it as a metcon. I plan on 5-10 rounds today. No specifics in mind, but I"m already on my way!
